    Middle-Class Linguistic Monstrosity of the Year

    Really, the linguistic monstrosity of 2012 should just be: Nicole Sherzinger. She created her own universe of linguistic awfulness, adding “Jah-” and “Sha-” onto absolutely everything. Dermot O’Leary branded it the ‘Nictionary’, which actually is quite witty. But still. The whole thing has been painful. And one of her words, “shamazing”, has managed to make its way beyond The X Factor and is starting to be heard in everyday parlance, which means it’s monstrous enough to beat out any other contender in this category (“amazeballs”, “impactful”). There’s even talk that it will make it into the dictionary next year. We look forward to the collective outrage.
